Pittville Pump Room roofline statues

 

We have the final word on these three statues from a founder member of Friends of Pittville, Judy Langhorn. Many people think that the left hand statue (viewed from the front) is holding a baseball bat, put there by the American troops who were stationed in the Pump Room during WW2. This is not true. Full story here The Pump Room statues. A postscript: the Borough Council recently replaced the 1960s ‘bat’ with another, also made of wood, which certainly does look like a large baseball bat!

Quiz night 18 February 2019

A very successful quiz evening was held at the welcoming Feathered Fish with a good turnout of ~ 60 people. There was a great atmosphere as contestants were tested by quiz-master Paul over a range of subjects. FoP raised £370, including £100 from the raffle, which will go towards Pittville Park projects and ongoing maintenance.  Thanks go out to Philippa Howell for organising the event and to Amanda Slayton-Joslin for assisting on the night. Also thanks to all who donated raffle prizes and to Henry Williams for ticket sales. Finally thanks to the Feathered Fish and their staff.
